Financial Aid and Scholarships

College of Continuing Education (CCE)


The first step in applying for financial aid is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for each academic year you apply for financial aid. The FAFSA is available October 1.  Review the Financial Aid Checklist for CCE Students for further instructions on applying for aid.

This form is used to adjust your cost of attendance based on your CCE degree program.  It is also required to award aid for the academic year based on courses provided for the Fall and Spring semesters. A change in enrollment (courses) requires a revised CCE Information Request form.  The form can be found under the Financial Aid Forms section of our website.

Requests for fee deferments must be made through CCE Credit Enrollment Services. 

CCE Credit Enrollment Services has a process where financial aid applicants are temporarily exempted from enrollment cancellation. This only applies to CCE courses. 

Once you have been awarded aid for the semester, CCE Credit Enrollment Services is notified and will defer your fees until financial aid disburses to your account.  For questions about fee deferments please contact CCE Credit Enrollment Services at 916-278-6984.

Grants are payable when you have met all application eligibility requirements and attendance begins for ALL enrolled courses listed for the specific semester on the CCE information request form.

Federal Direct Loans are payable when you have met all application eligibility requirements and attendance begins in at least half time enrollment (6 undergraduate units, 4 graduate units) for the specific semester listed on the CCE Information Request Form.

All changes to enrollment (Add/Change or Drops) will require a new CCE Information Request Form.  Once this form is received, the Financial Aid & Scholarships Office will review and make adjustments as needed.
